Typical of Summers Estate. "He said she said " yet you are all passing the buck to & frow & NOBODY wants or will own up. If you are old enough to be going drinking in pubs then you should also be old enough to behave in a correct manner. Which obviously some of you can't. It's suppose to be a family pub with a front outside garden. All that goes on are a lot of fights, drugs, very noisy nights & lunchtime loud music on a Sunday. There are shops along there where people are scared of what they are going to come across or some idiot makes an induendo even though you are just walking past, groups form outside the pub & they are all in competition as to who can become the loudest & Toughest. Beats me how they can afford these pints + the drugs on benefits. The pub needs to be constantly having police checking it for all of our safety who live on the estate. Tomorrow it will be like it's never happened, the guy who got hurt hopefully will recover & maybe never enter that pub again!! the guy who has caused all of this will come back bragging probably not even get a slap on the wrist. So he'll go do it again. That tells you just what HARLOW is all about! NO SELF CONTROL from some of the people who live here & none from the POLICE either.

Jacy- I don't know what pub you think you are taking about, but The Herald is my local and I've been a regular for over 20 years, and I don't recognise any of your comments. The Herald is an amazing family pub with a great manager and brilliant staff, who will all be shocked and horrified that this has happened. My thoughts and support are with them all, and not the likes of you and the other idiots who all think you know better

I have never seen police there. Only go Sunday when I can for my brother who hosts/plays. A great family atmosphere.

Wow the ( Gary ) that posted the stupid comment at the top... Maybe you're the one who needs to get a life my friend. You've just made yourself look stupid in front of loads of people. Get off your laptop and re consider your life buddy. Because at the moment your failing in life. SO keep your mouth shut and never use a laptop again. You seem to be a stupid little boy so get to school and learn how to grow up.

That’s my local. In the 20 years I’ve been going, I’ve only seen a couple of stabbings and people sniffing cocaine on a Saturday. Other than that there’s really nice Chinese down the road.
